Final Topic!

It was extremely difficult for me to find a topic that not only interested me, but also had good research behind it. The final topic I have chosen is, the effects of social and digital media on body images among young women. I have already started research for this topic and I have found many relevant and up to date articles about it. I think this topic is extremely important because so many female teens suffer from it and it is in every form of media but most important social media. From my own personal experience, I have noticed there are tons of posts and pictures of beautiful women and girls saying they want to be them or that they are “goals”. Its very sad how media shames women of their own bodies and makes them want to be something else. Another thing that stands out to me is the negative things teenagers say about each other on Twitter. The first things teens go to when trying to hurt someone is body shaming them.  This is a problem due to the fact that eating disorders are becoming a growing issue among teenage girls.
